Blog about hope for Sencos and SEN Leaders
Working within education (in any role, in any setting) is one of the most rewarding and fulfilling jobs that there is. It can also be one of the most stressful, demanding and tiring jobs! Jenny knows this, and knows the toll it can take on the family, on the self and on the physical health of a person.
However, it doesn’t have to be that way! Coaching and/or supervision can support anyone in ensuring that they maintain a positive balance, it can support emotional and mental wellness and will ensure that all staff feel empowered to tackle whatever comes their way next!
Jenny, the founder of Purplemoon, believes that by promoting and supporting a strong, collaborative, caring leadership educational establishments can be great places to work in.
Jenny believes that any establishment that puts wellbeing at the heart of it will be a place where educators will excel and the whole community will reap the rewards.
Purplemoon is always a bespoke package, able to support individuals, teams or whole schools/trusts in the way that best suits the circumstances. This may be through coaching or supervision sessions, or through a project aimed at improving staff wellbeing and school systems and processes. Whilst Jenny believes that there should be money in the funding for schools for this work, Purplemoon will take private paying clients.
Mentoring is like: Having an expert in to build a house and you build yours alongside them.
Purplemoon Coaching is like: The scaffold and tools that are used so you build the best house you can.
Purplemoon Supervision is like: Looking deeply at one aspect of the build with an expert to check that it is the best it can be.
Purplemoon CPD is like: Knowing what tools there are and how to use them to build your house.
A Purplemoon wellbeing project is like the architect and builder ready to work alongside the team to build the best house possible.
